Chairman Martinez explained the company that was supposedly recommended for the award of the Heavy Rail contract contacted the Board regarding the contract award recommendation not been forthcoming from the County administration. He noted he and former County Manager Alina Hudak met with Mr. Dorval Carter, Chief Counsel, Florida Transportation Administration (FTA), who confirmed FTA had received the paperwork and was reviewing it; and a response would be provided shortly. He clarified that in order to avoid jeopardizing federal dollars again he would not allow this item to be placed on the agenda until FTA completed its review.
Mayor Gimenez advised that the administration would proceed according to the outcome after FTA’s review was concluded.
